Linocut

A technique of creating art is called a linocut.  A linocut is a piece of linoleum, usually applied to a block of wood and then cut into with carving tools.  When you are carving a linocut you cut out the negative image so that the positive image will show when you are done making a print.

What kind of design would you like to do?  Would other colors make a difference in these pictures?

  1. I would love to do this. It is cool. I would carve a cow for my designs. I do think that other colors would make a difference in the linocuts.

  12. Pretty cool but take forever to make. It would really be horrible to accidently mess up. I wouldn't want to try this knowing i'd probably mess up at some point.

  21. NO, this is difficult and then you get hurt and you bleed for a good 5 minutes and then you get hurt again and you have to get it deep enough which is impossible

  22. This looks like its a dangerous i would hurt my self some how like I do on every project. The tools that he is using are hard to use I don't think i could do the whole project with that tool. I think I would use a brighter color so it catches people eyes.

    Any Idea?

  27. I think that this would be pretty challenging. It would most likely take a long time to do. I would do like a monkey or something like that.

  28. This is weird, i don't like it. It looks hard to do though. It would take a long time to do. And by the time your done you would have a bunch of cuts.

  31. This is really cool how they made these. It seems like it would be really fun to do in class sometime. It also seems like it would be really time consuming to make this.

  32. These look amazing, whoever did these must be talented and have a lot of patience. I remember doing this, I did a fish. It was harder then it looked like. I would never want to put in that much time or patience into something like this again.
